Endowed with the gifts of the Holy Spirit, the members of St. Mary`s dedicate ourselves
in a spirit of mutual respect to live and proclaim the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.
We are called to do this by reaching into our parish family, and reaching out to the
universal Church, by our constant ministering to their spiritual, educational, social and material needs. Our parish endeavors to use all that God has given us for His glory -
be that our time, talent, or treasure - in an environment of collaborative ministry, in full harmony with the teachings of and traditions of our Catholic faith. The members of our community act as faithful followers of Jesus and recognize from Whom the gifts come
and will joyfully give back to God what He has asked of us, under the constant care and protection of Mary, our Blessed Mother.
